| The country was once known for #blooddiamonds
-- diamonds mined and traded to fund the #civilwar
-- but no longer. Here, I visited a small-scale, "artisanal" #diamond
mine. There may no longer be blood, but there's definitely sweat -- from grueling, back-breaking work, sifting through gravel under the sweltering sun. If a #miner
is lucky, he will find one little speck of this colorless stone in a day.
